Nathalie Du Pasquier, French artist and designer, was born in Bordeaux in 1957. She has lived and worked in Milan since 1979. In 1981, Du Pasquier, who is self-taught in design, was among the protagonists of Memphis. Her many designs for decorated surfaces such as fabrics, carpets, furniture and plastic laminates have played a fundamental role in creating the unmistakable Memphis style. Despite her success as a designer, from 1987, when Memphis broke up, painting became her main activity. Du Pasquier's continuous research is expressed in paintings, sculptures, drawings, models, constructions, carpets, books and ceramics, which constantly investigate the boundary between the representative and the non-representative, the tangible and the intangible, reality and imagination and two- and three-dimensional forms. Her paintings have been exhibited in galleries and institutions around the world such as PACE Gallery and the Camden Arts Centre in London, the Kunsthalle Lissabon, and the Vienna Kunsthalle. Her first major solo exhibition in an Italian institution, entitled Campo di Marte, was held in 2022 at the Museo di Arte Contemporanea in Rome.
